Jacksonville’s new quarterback didn’t see the field for very long before having to be removed from the game with a shoulder injury. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport is reporting that it is a broken left clavicle that forced him to leave the game.
#Jaguars QB Nick Foles suffered a fracture clavicle. He’s out indefinitely.

Foles got hurt in the first half on a touchdown throw to D.J. Chark. Gardner Minshew took over and played well, but couldn’t lead the team to victory over the Chiefs. Minshew was 22 of 25 for 275 yards passing with two touchdowns and one interception in relief.
He signed with the team this offseason after being a backup to Carson Wentz in Philadelphia.
The Jaguars will likely promote Chase Litton from their practice squad to backup Minshew, unless they make a signing to replace Foles. Litton is in his second year out of Marshall, while Minshew is a rookie out of Washington State.
